BELLY PAN Helps! Classic Industries?

I'm interested in putting a belly pan on my car. I've heard that they can help with reversing some of the upforce on the the car, help with cooling, and reduce underhood debris. I see that Classic Industries has one available. Does anyone have any installation or driving experience with this piece? Are there any others that I should be considering? I'm also planning on putting a front wind splitter on the car at the same time. As much specific feedback as possible would be great. Thanks!

Is there a reason for the specific ZL1 pan suggestion. Do you have one or have experience with it? Will the ZL1 pan be a direct bolt-on part or will it require any kind of modifications to the car to attach it?

I have the Classic In dustries Belly Pan on my SS.
My main purpose for buying it was that I wanted it to keep my engine cleaner and it does help with that.
I wanted the ZL1 belly pan but couldnt wait any longer so I bought this one.

I too have the belly pan and have been happy with it so far. It was easy to install and it seems to keep the engine bay cleaner.

0o0o and it is only $100


gen5 belly pan from classic industries

Do you think it will help with fuel economy given the reduction in drag?




"If there’s one area the Generation Five Camaro needs improvement in, it’s aerodynamics. Classic Industries has the solution, this high quality aluminum belly pan for the Generation Five Camaro. This closeout panel, which installs onto the bottom of the forward frame in minutes, encloses the bottom of the car between the front valance and K-member. Manufactured from high grade aluminum and is engineered to help keep the engine cooler and also reduce aerodynamic drag by cleaning up underbody air flow. What’s better is that this closeout panel will not only improve your aerodynamics, but your engine will stay clean longer because this closeout panel will reduce road dust in your engine compartment. This belly pan measures 26 1/2" X 22", does not block oil-plug access, is available exclusively in silver satin anodized aluminum and includes mounting hardware."

I think I like this and it looks light weight. I wonder how it compares to the ZL1 belly pan.

I'm really interested to know what you think about the quality of the package from an installation and final fit perspective. Keep us posted please! Now I just need to find the right chin spoiler to go with the new Anvil CF rear spoiler.

The only thing that killed me on this part was I orderd it from Lyons and shipping was 45.99. That's almost halph the cost of the part. I have orderd from classic industry's before and if you don't mind 10 plus day for delivery. I'll take plenty of pics

Well the belly pan came today. For the weight conches don't worry this pan is very light. The hardware is 8 self tapping screws witch kinda worrys me because I don't have good luck with these screws for some reason. I'll post some pics later and I'll be putting it on Friday and I'll post some pics of that also.
